The need for a Plan of Management dor Batman Reserve was prompted by a resolution of the Council, at the meeting of 2 November 2010, to consider fencing a portion of the Reserve for a dog off-leash area.

A Plan of Management, however, can give direction to any matters relating to the management of this Reserve.  A Plan of Management, once adopted by Council, determines what can and cannot happen, or be developed, in the Reserve.

Some of the key directions provided in this dPoM include,

  • The bushland is categorised to remain as bushland
  • The grassed area is categorised to be used as Parkland
  • The proposal for a fenced dog off-leash area within part of the open space
  • Development of the Recreation amenity and play setting
  • Retention of the Emergency service usage
  • Ongoing provision of Asset Protection Zones (APZ) behind the houses
  • Acknowledgement of Cultural Heritage and History
  • Resolution of some Land classification issues

This consultation has concluded.
